Led Zeppelin won't tour without Robert Plant

Less than a month after Robert Plant made it clear in a BBC interview that he has no intention of setting aside his new project with Alison Krauss to get the Led out with his former bandmates, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones have pulled the plug on plans to soldier on without him.

As Page's manager, Peter Mensch, told Music Radar, "Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn't see them in 2007, you missed them. It's done. I can't be any clearer than that."

When Plant first said he couldn't work a lucrative reunion tour into his schedule for at least two years, there was talk of the other two doing an album and tour with a substitute, possibly Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy.

But Mensch says neither Kennedy nor any of the other singers Page and Jones auditioned fit the bill (which anyone who's ever listened to Led Zeppelin could have told them).

"That was it," Mensch said. "The whole thing is completely over now. There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero. Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it."

so here is the musicradar article:

"Led Zeppelin are over!" says Jimmy Page's manager
Group members not recording, touring together

Despite published reports indicating otherwise, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have abandoned plans to record and tour together.

MusicRadar spoke exclusively with Peter Mensch, Jimmy Page's manager, who stated categorically, "Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn't see them in 2007 [when they played a one-off reunion at London's O2 Arena], you missed them. It's done. I can't be any clearer than that."

Mensch confirmed that last fall, when singer Robert Plant made it known he was continuing his partnership with bluegrass artist Alison Krauss and had no intention of returning to Led Zeppelin, replacement vocalists were auditioned to possibly record and tour with Page, Jones and Bonham.

"They tried out a few singers, but no one worked out," says Mensch. "That was it. The whole thing is completely over now. There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero. Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it."

When asked what new projects Jimmy Page was going to be involved with in 2009, Mensch said, "Fuck if I know. I'm waiting to hear."

Well, I don't think it's as good as Phil's version of "Hoveround and Around"

or

"Throwing Stones...at you kids so you'll get off my lawn"

or

"Mexicali Bluehair"

Thank you, thank you, thank you, dilcurrie, for expressing the sentiment, just exactly perfect:

"It would be like the Dead touring without Garcia. Ridiculous!"
